Description

.Iadd.This application is a reissue of 07/432,598 filed Nov. 6, 1989 U.S. Pat. No. 4,967,262. .Iaddend.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

This invention relates to semiconductor packaging techniques, and, more specifically, to high-density, surface-mount devices.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Integrated semiconductor devices are typically constructed en masse on a wafer of silicon or gallium arsenide. Each device generally takes the form of an integrated circuit (IC) die. If the die is to be encapsulated in a plastic package, it is first bonded to the die-mounting paddle of a leadframe which is attached to other leadframes in a leadframe strip. The wire attachment pads on the die are connected with their corresponding leads on the leadframe with aluminum or gold wire during a wire bonding process, following which the die is coated with a protective polyimide film. Finally, the die is encapsulated in plastic and the plastic-encapsulated chip undergoes a trim and form operation which separates the interconnected packages on the leadframe strip into individual entities and bends (forms) the leads of each package. The package is then recognizable as an IC "chip". The operation for manufacturing plastic-encapsulated packages is highly automated, allowing high quality and low cost.

IC packages take many forms, although the trend is clearly toward designs which increase mounting density. For years, the standard IC package was the dual-inline package or DIP. Such packages were typically through-hole soldered on printed circuit boards. A newer dual-inline lead design, known as small-outline J-lead package, has been rapidly supplanting the standard DIP design for two reasons. Firstly, the leads of an SOJ package are soldered to only one side of a circuit board, thus leaving the other side of the board free for the mounting of additional SOJ packages. Secondly, the leads are much less vulnerable to damage prior to board assembly, hence, there are fewer rejects. Both DIP and SOJ packages are horizontal packages (i.e., the die is mounted in a plane parallel to the board-attachment plane). Vertical packages are also coming into greater use because they permit greater circuit board mounting density. Vertical packages have a very narrow horizontal cross section, with the die mounted between the vertical sides of the package, the distance between which is minimized. All leads exit through the lower edge of the package. The zig-zag inline package or ZIP is a typical vertical package. A vertical package known as the zig-zag inline package or ZIP is also coming into greater use. Existing ZIPs are designed for through- hole-soldered connections on a circuit board. Since such packages require very little board area for connection, they are particularly useful where high-density applications are a must. Although the use of a surface-mount ZIP has been suggested by Barbara Cole of Boise, Idaho's Micron Technology, Inc., the appeal of such a package is greatly diminished by the requirement that each package be maintained in a vertical position over its associated mounting pads until a solder reflow operation is performed.

What is needed is a new type of package which combines the density advantages of both the SOJ-type package with the vertical packaging of the ZIP, which can be positioned on a circuit board with currently available board-stuffing equipment and which will maintain its vertical position on the board without auxiliary package-support apparatuses until final attachment of the package to the circuit board during a solder reflow operation.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention combines the density advantages of both the SOJ-type package and the ZIP in a package design which does not require auxiliary mechanical support prior to solder reflow. This has been accomplished by creating a package having gull-wing shaped leads in a zig-zag configuration. In addition, the package has an anchoring pin at each end which rigidly secures the package to a printed circuit board both before and after lead-to-board attachment via solder reflow. Several embodiments of the invention adapt themselves to various types of automatic board-stuffing equipment. The first embodiment utilizes anchoring pins having fish-hook-type barbs which lock against the under side of the circuit board when the positioning pins are inserted through holes in the board having roughly the same diameter as the pins. When the anchoring pins are seated in the board holes, each of the package's gull-wing-shaped leads is resiliently biased against its associated bonding pad on the board, thus assuring a solid electrical connection when the board and package assembly is solder reflowed. A first embodiment package is designed so that a similar package with anchoring pins having reverse-direction barbs can be mounted on the other side of the board using the same holes. A second embodiment of the invention utilizes anchoring pins which can be bonded using quick-setting adhesive to recesses that been drilled or molded into only one side of the circuit board. A third embodiment dispenses with holes and recesses in the board altogether and has anchoring pins, the ends of which can be bonded directly to planar pin bonding regions on a circuit board. The first and second embodiments have an advantage in that the anchoring pins afford a significant degree of protection to the gull-wing leads from mechanical damage. On the other hand, the third embodiment, while not providing the same degree of protection to the leads, does offer the advantage of not requiring a drilling step for creating mounting holes or mounting recesses on the circuit board.

PREFERRED EMBODIMENT OF THE INVENTION

Referring now to FIG. 1, a first embodiment of the invention in the form of a gull-wing zig-zag inline package 11 having barbed anchoring pins 12 is shown mounted on a printed circuit board 13. Anchoring pins 12 are integral with the package's molded plastic body 14. A pair of round anchoring pin holes 15 have been drilled in circuit board 13. Anchoring pins 12 have a square-shouldered shank 16 that acts as a travel limiting device when pins 12 are inserted into holes 15. The lower portion 17 of positioning pins 12 is sized so that it may be inserted into holes 15. The gull-wing shaped leads 18 are resiliently biased against bonding pads 19 when anchoring pins 12 have been seated against their square shanks 16. Barbs 20 are shown as anchoring package 11 against the lower surface of printed circuit board 13. It will be noted that anchoring pins 12 extend below the level of gull-wing shaped leads 18, thus providing protection to the leads from mechanical damage.

Referring now to FIG. 2, which is a crosssectional view through the gull-wing zig-zag inline package 11 of FIG. 1, the gull-wing shape of leads 18 is readily discernable. Barb 20 is also readily visible in this view.

Referring now to FIG. 3, package 11 is shown detached from circuit board 13. The unanchoring of package 11 from circuit board 13 has been done so as to be able to see the shape of gull-wing leads 18 when they are not under compression against bonding pads 19.

Referring now to FIG. 4, a pair of first-embodiment devices are shown anchored to different sides of a printed circuit board 13 using a single pair of anchoring holes 15. It will be noted that the barbs 20 on the upper package 11 face outward, while the barbs 41 on lower package 42 face inward. Using the technique of opposite facing barbs in order to populate both sides of a printed circuit board, it is evident that two different molds are required for encapsulation when creating the package.

Referring now to FIG. 5, a pair .Iadd.of .Iaddend.identical second-embodiment gull-wing ZIP packages 51 are shown bonded to opposite sides of a printed circuit board. It will be noted that, in this case, anchoring pins 52 do not extend from one side of circuit board 53 to the other. Anchoring pins 52 of this particular embodiment have rectangular-cross-section shanks 53. Quick-setting cyano-acrylic adhesive is utilized to bond the cylindrical nubs 54 of anchoring pins 52 in the depressions 55 on board 53. .Iadd.In this embodiment, depressions 55 serve merely as alignment recesses, being incapable of providing vertical support to the packages 51 and maintain the leads 18 in a state of compression against the board bonding pads 19 without the use of an adhesive to anchor the nubs 54 within the depressions 55. .Iaddend.The advantage to this approach is that two different molds are not required to provide components to stuff both sides of a circuit board.

Referring now to FIG. 6, a pair of identical third-embodiment gull-wing ZIP packages 61 are shown anchored to opposite sides of a common printed circuit board 63. This embodiment does not require the drilling of anchoring pin holes in the printed circuit board. The third embodiment ZIP package 61 is virtually identical to the second embodiment version depicted in FIG. 5, with the exception that the cylindrical nubs 54 of anchoring pins 52 have been eliminated completely. The end sections 62 of packages 61 have a planar surfaces which are bonded directly to circuit board 63 with quick-setting adhesive. Adhesive displaced during the bonding process is represented by fillet 64.

Referring now to FIG. 7, a single fourth-embodiment gull-wing ZIP package 71 is shown mounted on a circuit board 72. The fourth embodiment ZIP package 71 is also virtually identical to the second embodiment version depicted in FIG. 5, with the exception that cylindrical nubs 54 of anchoring pins 52 have been replaced with tapered extensions 74. A pair of holes 75 have been drilled in circuit board 72. The holes are slightly larger in diameter than the tip of tapered extensions 74 to facilitate positioning of the package on the board with conventional automatic pick and place equipment. However, the hole diameter is smaller than the base of tapered extensions 74, such that when tapered extensions 74 are forced into the holes, friction will retain the gull-wing leads in a compressed state and the package itself in a stable upright position on circuit board 72 until a solder reflow can be effected. The rectangular-cross section shank 76 of anchoring pin 73 limits the insertion depth of tapered extensions 74 into circuit board 72.

Although only certain embodiments of the invention have been described herein, it will be apparent to one skilled in the art that changes and modifications may be made thereto without departing from the spirit and the scope of the invention as claimed.
